Ionic diffusion of Li+ in solids can be modified by an interface, but little is known about the details of this. In this experiment we study the Li+ ion mobility as a function of distance from an interface between two types of solid. The results will be important in the development of a new generation of solid state ionic devices such as Li+ batteries.
